World Cup Map Bungle

Postby lackattack on Thu Jul 14, 2011 9:08 pm

Today I updated the 2011 World Cup map, and it changed the gameplay affecting many games including two tournaments. I shouldn't have applied that update to ongoing games just like that, and I failed to read the instructions provided to me by samuelc812. This was pretty stupid of me and I take full responsibility. It is not the fault samuelc812 or any other of our wonderful volunteers.

I have reverted back to the previous version of the map, and hopefully we can sort things out with affected games...

I already wondered what happened. New Zealand became England. And back again. It sure puts some dynamics in the game.
